federation has given to this situation if workers strike at 14 of the country's ports all along the east coast, the gulf coast, from maine to texas. what's happening here is members of the international long shoreman's union, they're at an impasse with management over wages, as well as container royalties. these are royalties, fees paid to dock workers based on the wait of cargo that's unloaded. they were created five decades ago as an alternative to paying higher wages. you can think of it as bonuses for longshoremen. but here's the thing. cargo canes say the bonuses are sxweezing their profits and limiting their ability to compete. the deadline for this situation is friday at midnight. dock workers, they they've got some big leverage here. the clear thing is, we need our ports running. it could have a huge and negative ripple effect on the economy. the strike could stop truckers and railroads right in their tracks. it can cause delays at factories and keep goods off store shelves. we got a taste of what this could be like. there was an eight-day strike in los angeles earlier this year

a billion dollars a day. that's just one port. this is going to be newark, the gulf ports down in houston. adam: what seems to be a sticking point is a fee that the men and women who unload the containers get paid by the weight of the container. one thing not knowing too much of the details of where the hold-up is, the containers are getting larger and larger. what the ports are saying is it's too expensive. it hit a point where the the fees can't keep growing. they want to cap it. that seems to be where they are at loggerheads. you don't want to shut down commerce in the united states and that's what this will do. liz: it would stretch from maine to houston apparently. it would choke supply chains across the country. and whether or not the federal government would step in and mediate this one is going to be a key issue going forward for any similar labor disputes. david: if the government does, of course the obama administration has been seen as being pro union, would that continue to be pro union even though being pro union could cripple this economy. liz: it depends on whoois on the bo
